Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Hopper Heating and Air is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need one because the furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Shelby night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
